Slait Hill, East Cranmore

Slait Hill is a small detached portion of the Parish of Cranmore, between East Cranmore and Downhead.

The word ‘slait’ is a local word meaning ‘an accustomed run or pasture for sheep’. It is derived from the Old English word ‘slæget’ or ‘sleget’ which is the source of the dialect word ‘slait’.

At the foot of the hill is one of the many historic toll cottages that can still be found dotted about the area.

At the top there is a track which leads to Cranmore Tower. A little further on, there is a public footpath which brings you to a viewing area over the immense Torr Works quarry.
